Neurosurgery/Brain Doctor

As the premier orthopedic and neurosurgical providers for Portland, Vancouver, and the surrounding areas for over 50 years, our fellowship-trained and board-certified/eligible neurosurgeons at Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery are dedicated to delivering exceptional neurosurgical care.

At the core of the human body is the nervous system, which includes both the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. It has the vital job of transmitting signals to and from different parts of the body. Neurosurgery is the specialized medical field dedicated to the assessment and treatment of those injuries and conditions that affect the nervous system. Neurosurgeons have undergone extensive training, allowing them to help patients with their brain, spine, or nerve issues and achieve an improved quality of life.

When Is It Time to Consult a Neurosurgery/Brain Doctor?

Being able to communicate any of the symptoms you are experiencing will allow you to provide helpful information to your neurosurgeon. It can reveal to your doctor how severe your injury is or the type of condition you may have. It is important to schedule an appointment with a neurosurgery/brain doctor near you if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Consistent migraines
  • Difficulty keeping your balance, even when just standing
  • Dizziness
  • Impaired vision
  • Loss of coordination
  • Memory loss
  • Pain in the back, neck, arm, or leg
  • Weakness in the arms or legs

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it could mean that you have one of the following medical conditions, which can be treated by our neurosurgery and brain specialists:

  • Aneurysm
  • Arteriovenous malformations
  • Brain trauma
  • Brain tumor
  • Hydrocephalus (water on the brain)
  • Pituitary tumor
  • Spinal cord tumor
  • Spinal trauma
  • Stroke
  • Trigeminal neuralgia

Our neurosurgery specialists understand that a neurological disorder can have an impact on your lifestyle and keep you from living the life you love. To discuss your options, schedule a consultation with one of our neurosurgeons by calling 1-800-REBOUND or requesting an appointment online. Our neurosurgical experts are available at Salmon Creek, Rebound Neurosurgery Vancouver, and Rebound Neurosurgery Rose Quarter.

The Region's Most Preferred Neurosurgical Care in Vancouver & Portland

At Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery, our doctors and staff put patients first and are dedicated to providing compassionate, quality orthopedic care. As the region's most preferred orthopedic practice, we are proud to be the official sports medicine providers for the Portland Trail Blazers and continuously strive for excellence.

Our fellowship-trained and board-certified/eligible neurosurgeons, Wendy Chang, M.D., Ph.D., Hoang N. Le, M.D., Ashok Modha, M.D., F.R.C.S.C., Wael Y. Musleh, M.D., Ph.D., Andrew Nemecek, M.D., Brian Ragel, M.D., and George B. Shanno, M.D., have the skill and expertise to treat a wide variety of neurological conditions. Our neurosurgery doctors will always exhaust all conservative treatments before suggesting surgery; however, there are some situations in which neurosurgery is the best option to help eliminate pain and restore function. If surgery is recommended, our neurosurgeons have vast experience in performing many surgical procedures, including minimally invasive brain and spine surgery, endoscopic brain surgery, carotid endarterectomy, and stereotactic radiosurgery (CyberKnife & Gamma Knife), as well as craniotomies for brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations, and aneurysms.

To help facilitate a full and rapid recovery, our neurosurgeons take a team approach when it comes to patient-centered care, and they work in conjunction with our physical therapists and athletic trainers, who offer comprehensive physical therapy services. Our ultimate goal is to provide an effective rehabilitation plan that is focused on your individual needs to help you resume a pain-free lifestyle.
